Long Beach Airport main terminal (built in 1941) is a Cultural Historic Landmark and features historical exhibits about the airport. So, luckily, it cannot be torn down. It is a masterpiece of the early modern style, bridging the transition from the modernistic Streamline Moderne style of the ‘thirties to the geometric abstraction of the post-war International Style. It was an avant-garde work of architecture for its time, and is a unique building in the City of Long Beach. New arrival and departure terminals have recently opened and the old terminal is now used for check-ins only. It has some wonderful tilework on both floors.
I made a new heading for my blog. ^^ It’s a parody of the famous neon sign placed on the former factory of McDonnell Douglas at Long Beach Airport in California. In this factory all the Douglas DC and MD airliners were built until MDD was bought by Boeing.
